  • Rahul da Cunha: Masterchef, maitre d's and momos

    So, dear reader, it's been an action-packed week. Much has happened in international affairs, with George Clooney attaining fatherhood, and Comey testifying against Trump (is the USA a true democracy or what?)

  • Rahul da Cunha: Gimme 'mor'

    So, there was a time when the crow was under consideration to be the national bird. After all it had all qualities Indian – it is hardy, relentless, noisy, inquisitive

  • Rahul da Cunha: Who let the dogs out?

    So, as the BMC mercilessly hacks trees, and the BJP government, completes three years of 'Acche Din', I wonder, if our CEO at all feels he's heading a Banana Republic

  • Rahul da Cunha: SoBo to NoBo is a no no

    So, I've done the unthinkable. As a confirmed South Bombayite, I've gone and rented a small North Mumbai office in Bandra. All hell has broken loose in SoBo

  • Rahul da Cunha: JB in DY, RGV & AAP

    So, it's been one of those weeks. Justin Bieber 'choppered' his way into the DY Patil stadium in Navi Mumbai. Armed with a Jacuzzi and many dancers

  • Rahul da Cunha: The king of Osho business

    So, occasionally, I do photo walks through the bylanes of the city formerly known as Bombay, capturing aspects that were once regal, now a tad rundown

  • Rahul da Cunha: Lock, Livestock & Barrel

    So, I was talking to my gang of cattle chums the other day. These are a bunch of cows, bulls, oxen and calves I've known for a while. We hang out mostly at milk bars or watering holes like TGIF (Thank God It's Falooda)

  • Rahul da Cunha: Celebrity saleability!

    So, I'm a great believer in the power of ads to convince me to buy a brand. Plus, I'm a blind follower of celebrity endorsements

  • Rahul da Cunha: IPL & I

    So, I've been an IPL addict since 2008. I love all these nations coming together, playing under the same banner, wearing all these bright colours - reddish shirts and green pants, like teams of Robin Hoods and male Red Riding Hoods

  • Rahul da Cunha: On a dark, daroo-less highway

    So, the Supreme Court ruling to shut down liquor shops along national and state highways, reminds me a bit of demonetisation – if the latter destabilised an entire economy to catch a few black money hoarders, the former affects the livelihood of thousands, to stop a few drunk drivers

  • Rahul da Cunha: Conversations with a Chappal

    So, I had a conversation with the most famous footwear in the country. Yes, the same one that slapped an airline officer

  • Rahul da Cunha: Bullies without a brain

    (Please note, dear reader — there is no rhythm to these words, no Enimen rap style. They're not lyrics, or slam poetry, or blank verse, just read as you will)

  • Rahul da Cunha: Alpha Male vs Predator

    There's a new predator in town. He's slick, he's smarmy, he's a shark in a suit. Like Dick Whittington, he comes to the city seeking much fame and fortune, he tightens his Hindi belt, and looks out at Mumbai like it's Manhattan. Indeed, he has found his Promised Land, his playground

  • Rahul da Cunha: International 'Something' Day

    So, it's that month, when a soothsayer apparently warned Julius Caesar about the imminent ides of March

    Mar 12, 2017, 06:30 IST

  • Rahul da Cunha: Hey Bro

    So, I use the word 'bro' a lot. Bro transcends language. It's beyond Hindi or English. "Hey bro, chill" is the same as 'Hey bro, tension mat le' in the city

  • Rahul da Cunha: Hashtags and Haruki Murakami

    So my mother calls me from her landline. My mater and I rarely communicate by mobile – largely because her handset is a Nokia 1300, once used by the Nazis in World War II. There are only two left in the world. She possesses one, the other is exhibited in the Berlin War Museum
